Students collect canned food to give their teacher a Mohawk

Sometimes students need a little extra motivation, so Kyrene Centennial Middle School eighth-grade teacher Scott Schutkowski used his head to find a way to inspire them.

He got a Mohawk.

When Schutkowski heard that Centennial’s school-wide canned food drive to benefit the Kyrene Resource Center was not doing well, he told his team of 115 students that if they collected 1,000 cans in the last two days of the drive he would get the haircut.

“I didn’t really think they would collect 1,000 cans, so I was very surprised when they did,” Schutkowski said. “I think some teachers ganged up on me, though. I know the drama teacher dropped off 30 cans in my classroom, and office staff contributed to our team, too.”

Schutkowski received the Mohawk in school on Tuesday, but he plans on changing his hairstyle before he visits with his friends from high school this weekend.

“I had crazy hair when I was in high school, but there’s something odd about a 39-year-old with a Mohawk,” he said. “My barber thinks that she can do a little more conservative version of a Mohawk. I’m going to let her attempt it, but if she can’t I’m prepared to have very short hair.”
